Olive Garden also provided Matt and I a $25 gift card to enjoy a special night out, and try their Never Ending Pasta Bowl.  I was excited to enjoy a quite date night with Matt and got a sitter for the kids.  I love Olive Garden but I have to admit I almost ALWAYS order the same thing.  Soup and salad… it is “thrifty”, fills me up and delicious every time!  So it was time to step out of my routine and pick something new.

Pasta Choices– Spaghetti, Whole Wheat Linguine, Linguine, Fettuccine, Penne, Angle hair, Orecchiette

Sauce Choices– Roasted Mushroom Parmesan with Sun Dried Tomatoes, Pizzaiola  meat Sauce, Alfredo, Five Cheese marinara, Marinara, Meat Sauce

I enjoyed the hot bread sticks, and the salad.  I swear I could eat the big bowl of salad  myself that is how much I love it!  But I had to save room for my pasta.

In no time, my pasta was ready and it was time for me to dig in…. What did I pick?

Well I don’t eat much, so I did not think I could make it to a 2nd bowl… so I asked them to split the first bowl half and half.

One Half was Whole Wheat Linguine with Alfredo and the other half was  Penne with Five Cheese Marinara.  I don’t like red sauce much so I was a little worried but my waiter told me the Five Cheese Marinara was a really nice blend and I should try it.  I am glad I did, because it turned out to be  really good.

Well I made it about half way thru my bowl of Pasta before I was stuffed and could not eat another bite…. we boxed up the left overs and took them home.  Enough to eat another meal… two meals for only $8.95 is a Thrifty deal if you ask me 🙂

Thanks again to Olive Garden for the gift card so we could try your Never Ending Pasta Bowl, and another to give away to one of our readers.
